Classes are on hand-building, throwing or both. The beginner wheel classes are geared toward centering and producing functional objects on the wheel. Various techniques will be demonstrated. Cups with and without handles, bowls and small dishes are demonstrated, taught and practiced. Learning to throw well, like any craft takes time and practice, it is goal for it to be fun too. We also welcome students with individual project ideas and will do our best to accommodate them. Some larger projects may require additional firing and materials costs. We do expect conscientious use of materials and resources. Open studio privileges are granted to current students or those who have made arrangements for hourly/monthly use.
The intermediate/advanced classes and workshops are more about introducing new techniques and improving throwing skills. We will be working on decorative and design elements that are the key to making great pots.
